What Are Registered Building Control Approvers?

Registered Building Control Approvers are businesses which work in the private sector providing building control services. Registered Building Control Approvers are regulated by the Building Safety Regulator to advise and guide clients about the Building Regulations.

As a Registered Building Control Approver, Stroma Building Control is able to provide a proactive, client-led service to make building control approval simple for clients. Operating nationally, we can also draw on the breadth of experience of over 100 Registered Building Inspectors to deliver specialist advice to clients about a range of project developments and types.

The Role Of A Registered Building Control Approver

A Registered Building Control Approver works with a client throughout the construction process. They offer advice and check that any building work undertaken is done in compliance with the Building Regulations. This includes taking responsibility for plan checking and inspecting any building work through a series of site inspections.

When you appoint Stroma Building Control, we will jointly notify your local authority of your intended building work. This is done via an Initial Notice submission to the local authority. This Initial Notice allows Stroma Building Control to assume the role of the building control body for your project. As part of this role, we carry out a plan check before works start, site inspections during construction, and issue you a Final Certificate upon satisfactory completion of the works.

A Registered Building Control Approvers Role Includes: 

  • Giving advice about how the Building Regulations apply to your work
  • Checking your plans
  • Inspecting the work as it progresses
  • Issuing a final certificate
